I would limit carrots but as long as you stay within your macros you will be fine. I was eating 12oz per day broccoli and asparagus each day on my last prep up until my final carb up I was also having 2.5oz tomato every night with dinner.Originally Posted by gspyropo

Up to you, but the more food meals you have the more satiated you will feel throughout prep. I would limit it to post workout, possibly one in the AM upon waking if you feel like you need it.Originally Posted by gspyropo

Raw fermented sauerkraut and other lacto-fermented veggies. I have at least 3 hefty servings of fermented veggies per day. Do some research on the benefits of lacto-fermentation and you will never eat "fresh" or "cooked" veggies again. The fermentation process turns veggies into a super food. Also, whatever sugars present in carrots, etc are consumed by the live and active cultures and converted into lactic acid. I am currently 4 weeks out.
